ABHISHEK SHAW started this petition to West Bengal government

Fireworks cause extensive air pollution in a short amount of time, leaving metal particles, dangerous toxins, harmful chemicals and smoke in the air for hours and days. Exposure to fine particles, like those found in smoke and haze has the ability of worsening the pandemic situation. It can increase the number of deaths due to Covid 19 which is too a respiratory disease.

Banning of fireworks will prevent the further worsening of the pandemic situation as well as it will decrease the amount of negative impact on the environment.

In a situation where schools, colleges, many public transports, etc. are closed, fireworks should also be banned and the government should help the traders and families involved with the business related to fireworks.
